Default Download directory problem

Hello everyone!

I have QNAP JDownloader installed on my NAS.
I have a problem with the download directory.
The route is: /share/Digital Media/Downloads
Digital multimedia has a space. As I have read in the forums JDownloader and linux understand the space with "\" that is to say like this:

/share/Digital\ Media/Downloads

This has always worked for me but I had to reinstall JDownloader and now when I put it in configuration:
Default Download Folder: /share/Digital\ Media/Downloads

When I enter it it saves it as:
Default Download Folder: /share/Digital\\ Media/Downloads/

And obviously when downloading it doesn't store them in that path :(

How can I fix this directory space problem?

Thank you!

@eldescargador: You only have to escape the space in case it may have multiple meanings. For example on command line/shell the space can be space in path BUT also separator for parameters. That's why you either escape it or quote the string.

But you enter a normal String in Settings/Advanced Settings and therefore you do NOT have to escape anything but enter the path normally, eg
 /share/Digital Media/Downloads
But this looks wrong to me as on QNAP you have to specify what share (usb,hdd,raid..) you want to download from.
So in case you will receive an "Invalid Directory" error, it is because you try to download onto your root partition/flash and not on your disks.

Also please know that changing default download folder will not affect/change existing links in list. Those you will have to manually change via rightclick menu
